i'll come in slow 
dip my toes
say a few friendly hellos 
answer a few questions 
make promises i can't keep
to people i'll never meet
like a ball of sunshine
everyone wants some heat 
and i'll gladly give it
after i'm done burning

I've read this a few times Ana. Sounds like your approach to writerscafe. Gently does it, warm up, give out some warmth but the burn up? I hope that doesn't mean you are exhausting yourself. Burning to me doesn't in anyway come across as a positive. Over to you :)

thanks very much for that Kolipop.
I think give and take are perhaps the themes here, where you add up the totals at the end of the tax year and find the give column full where the take column has little from anyone else but whats been taken from you. And the burning could be the flames of indignant fury of the reminders of all the takers.
How can we go on, any of us, when the steam builds, you gotta vent.
Burn on Ana, fight fire with fire.
Ps... Note to self...use the word indignant more :)

Taxing indeed. What a wonderful analogy. :)
Sounds like you have given too much of yourself to others with your poetry, yourself our time whatever. And now it's time to look after you Ana.

whatever, or whoever inspired these fine words, be it, or they good or bad needs a round of applause... I get a sense you may be referring to the Cafe... but I don't want to get my fingers burnt, so will just say hello, well done you...... even tho I prefer rare to medium as a rule...
